I'm sure all of you have seen the first ever photo of a black hole (well, the event horizon actually, but why nitpick) which according to an article in sciencealert.com, astronomers have unofficially designated M87*. However they have also collaborated with a Hawaiian language professor who has proposed a slightly more poetic sounding Hawaiian word as it's new name. That word is Powehi with its somewhat ominous sounding definition being, "embellished dark source of unending creation". Personally, with a definition like that, I would think there'd have to be a very interesting story behind the origin of that word.
Nonetheless, as for me I still prefer Holey McHoleface.

“The big butthole” in the spirit of sciencey people using “the Big Bang” as a simple word to let simpletons know where Sh it came from.

Best name for a black hole is "The Great Gig In The Sky".

Maximilian, after Maximilian Schell, who was the Captain Nemo-like bad guy in Disney's "The Black Hole."

I'd name it mosquito bite because they suck and are the result of sucking.

How about Cornell Blackhole. There's a petition in Seattle to name it after the late Chris Cornell, who sang "Black hole sun" back in the day.



btw, I like the name Kevin...seems like there was some hubub a while back about the Catholic Church revealing the true name of God...as Kevin. lol.
